Clients of this boutique rental agency include Coach, Vogue, and the New Museum.

A Strut dining table costs $295 for up to seven days; dining chairs range from $12 to $35 each.
Lovers of the modern aesthetic can furnish a weekend-long extravaganza without ever lifting a finger, since owner Stephen Wallis arranges for delivery anywhere along the Eastern Seaboard. If a couple needs to lock down eighteen glamorous red-velvet chaises, they can check the stock quantity, details, and measurements on the company’s website. A glossy, white oval table that seats eight starts at $350. For modern seating options, check out either the sleek, white Ultra Bellini chair or the clear Stark Ghost chair (both for $15).
Patina Vintage Rentals347-464-5788; rentpatina.com
Housed in an old garment factory in Bushwick, Corrin Arasa’s handpicked collection of vintage furniture and décor boasts pieces in a range of styles from New England Colonial to early-1900s French to Scandinavian mid-century modern. She helps couples put together a comprehensive design scheme—a recent client asked for “twenties speakeasy meets rustic.” If you don’t find the item of your dreams in her collection, she’ll help you track it down elsewhere. Prices upon request. By appointment only.
Prop N Spoon32-00 Skillman Ave., third fl., Long Island City; 212-244-9600; propsfortoday.com
This warehouse deals with more than just run-of-the-mill items, offering as many authentic antique-furniture selections (early-American, Louis XVI, twenties) as contemporary lines. Modern-design aficionados will gravitate to the rental studio’s Saarinen Tulip chairs. A trained wedding staff sits down with clients to outfit blank spaces. The ground-floor loading dock makes for easy pickup if you want to DIY. Prices upon request.
Taylor Creative, Inc.150 W. 28th St., nr. Seventh Ave., Ste. 1001; 646-336-6808; taylorcreativeinc.com
Bobby Taylor’s furniture rentals favor a geometric, downtown aesthetic: Square tufted ottomans, high runner tables with chrome accents, and lounge-y benches are de rigueur. Couples looking for modern minimalism can browse its collection—a cube table is $300 for a five-day rental—but Taylor also stocks more ornate fixtures such as chandeliers and life-size lamps in the shape of a horse. All units can be delivered by the company crew.
